The Mk1 tank has 'fragilised' bolts.

David.............thanks for posting the drawing of the "IS" tank install. I've been curious about it.

Did you ever get your mystery solved about the line of rivets not being installed?

It is a drawing error that will be corrected.
The holes marked within the red area should be LP4-3
